-Reviews from participants in Mr. Jenkins' "Formative Assessments Done Right" session, Albuquerque, NM

"I am so appreciative of your message and process taking into account not just the academic learning, but also the psychology of it all, including the basic human need for hope and a sense of self-efficacy. Our teachers were highly engaged and the majority of them stayed long after the workshop ended, to collaboratively plan for using L to J next year. Thank you so much for this excellent learning opportunity with you!"
